One of the things I am really looking forward to this holiday season is being more social and seeing friends. It has been many many years since I’ve had a relaxing holiday season because of the bake shop. And I am so ready! While Kimmy has always thrown get togethers and parties, and I have usually attended, I am either late, leaving early, exhausted, or sometimes I’ve skipped it all together. So, I’m looking forward to everything the holiday season is bringing this year.
Part of the fun of the holidays is cooking and sharing food and recipes with friends and family. And even if you have people over for a drink but don’t do a full dinner, it’s still nice to have something to snack on. And these Cumin Garlic Lemon Potato Wedges are just perfect for that! You can serve these Cumin Garlic Lemon Potato Wedges as an appetizer, as a snack, or even as part of a meal.
I use If & When Cumin Garlic Meyer Lemon Paste to give these potatoes extra flavor, with minimal ingredients. This potato wedges recipe has 5 ingredients, that’s it! I love using If & When Cumin Garlic Meyer Lemon Paste to add a punch of flavor with minimal ingredients. This small but mighty jar of lemon paste is just bursting with flavor! I have one in my fridge at all times.
Tips for Making the Best Cumin Garlic Lemon Potato Wedges
• I make wedges with this recipe as you can serve them like French fries. You can alternatively cut into cubes as well, and they would be just as good!
• Make sure to flip potatoes so they can brown on each side.
• Always salt and pepper your potatoes or fries after they come out of the oven. Why do you salt potatoes after cooking? Salt will draw out moisture, so if you salt potatoes before it can leave them with a lackluster texture, and they won’t crisp up as nicely. So, that’s why it is important to leave salt until the very end!
• I serve these with ketchup, you can also serve as a side dish to chicken, steak, or even add a dipping sauce like a garlic dip or hummus.
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
